Maximizing efficiency of truck routing

The Mobile Foodshare program currently serves 60 sites in 20 towns.  Using special truck routing software - UPS Roadnet, which was acquired through our partnership with Feeding America - Foodshare has determined that with new scheduling and routing for our two mobile trucks, we might be able to add as many as 25 more sites!  All without adding another truck or driver!

When I recently sent out a message to all of our Mobile Foodshare site coordinators about the proposed changes, here were the first two responses I received:

"Greetings - your message is acknowledged. We look forward to working with you to maximize food security for all communities."  Community Renewal Team, Hartford

"This is awesome news!!! YOU do what you have to do to re-organize routes – and WE will happily accommodate and help in any way we can. CONGRATULATIONS!"  Willington Senior Center
